Having the Right Uniform Matters: Here’s Where to Find What You Need

First impressions mean a lot. For many gig workers, making a good first impression means wearing the right uniform. In most cases, Shiftgig clients expect workers to arrive in the appropriate uniform ready to work. To help you find the right uniforms, we rounded up links to affordable pieces commonly required for Specialists finding work through Shiftgig.

COMMON UNIFORMS FOR SERVERS, BARTENDERS AND OTHER FRONT OF HOUSE STAFF

Front of house employees — or staff that interacts with customers — generally wear button ups, black pants (no denim or stretchy material), aprons and ties. Clients are required to input uniform requirements so you’ll find these details in your app, and must confirm you have all required pieces before claiming a shift.
